Just to add to David's response...I have to agree that sleep is certainly a luxury for any team aiming for 200+.
But also, don't forget that the NSW teams have to contend with losing an hour's sleep due to the commencement of Daylight Savings time on the Saturdee nite...a cruel blow when one looks at their clock thinking it's 2am ("not bad")...but it's actually 3am ("sigh")! Doesn't sound like much, but it hurts!
The 'committed' HHB team managed to get 8 nocturnal birds this year, including 2 Bittern species within 3 minutes of each other, as well as three Tyto Owls...so birding at night can also be very productive.
And there can be no doubt...the adrenalin is what gets you through to Sundee arvo...but being idle in the approach to 4pm is definitely a punishable offence in the Brewer camp. There's always a raptor or two that one can add to the list, etc etc.
